Lifetime Announces The Stars Of Its Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Movie

There’s no denying that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s real-life fairy tale romance is one for the books, but apparently, it’s also for the small screen.

The pair, who got engaged in November, met on a blind date in Toronto, Canada after a mutual friend set them up, but they kept their relationship private for the first six months.

After nearly a year of speculation, Harry and Meghan finally made their first official public appearance as a couple at the 2017 Invictus Games in the city where their love story began.

Their lives have been at the center of media attention ever since, and with their upcoming nuptials, the hype isn’t about to die anytime soon.

Back in January, it was revealed that Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle’s fairytale romance will be the subject of a Lifetime movie titled Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story.

Now, Lifetime TV has announced the stars who will be portraying the Prince and the royal-to-be in the upcoming biopic.

Prince Harry Takes Meghan Markle To Visit Princess Diana’s Grave

Prince Harry has taken Meghan Markle to visit his beloved mother’s final resting place at her childhood home in Northants, England.

Princess Diana passed away on August 31, 1987 following a car accident in Paris, France. She was only 36 years old.

As expected, Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William, took their mother’s death particularly hard. Before her death, a young Harry had skipped a phone call with his mother in favor of playing outside, something he regrets to this day.

“And I had to live with that for the rest of my life, knowing that I was that 12-year-old boy wanting to get off the phone and wanting to go and run around and play games rather than speak to my mum,” Harry told the BBC.

William cited his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, as being a rock for himself and Harry during the difficult time, despite facing public backlash for staying at Balmoral with her grandsons.

“I think it was a very hard decision for my grandmother to make. She felt very torn between being a grandmother to William and Harry and her Queen role,” William said in the same interview.

According to the Daily Star, the prince and Markle went to Althorp estate this past November, so he could “speak” to Diana and get her blessing to propose to his now bride-to-be.

Meghan Markle To Break British Protocol And Deliver Wedding Speech

With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding only less than four months away, the loved-up pair are making the final decisions on their ceremony.

They are set to wed in front of about 800 guests in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in front of 800 guests.

While the guest list has yet to be made public, there is speculation over what high-profile figures will be in attendance.

Markle, who has already been known to occasionally break royal protocol, is reported to make a speech at the couple’s wedding reception on May 19.

While it’s tradition in England for the groom, the father of the bride, and the best man to make speeches at the reception, it’s not unheard of for the bride to give her own address.

But what will Markle say in her speech?

Elton John Shares The Exact Moment Prince Harry Told Him He Was In Love With Meghan Markle

With Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s fairytale wedding quickly approaching, royal watchers can’t get enough of the intimate details of their love story.

Now music legend Elton John – who recently announced his farewell tour – has gotten on the bandwagon, and publicly revealed the story of when Harry told him he was in love with Markle.

John, who has known Harry since he was an infant (he was a close friend to the late Princess Diana), told Lorraine host, Lorraine Kelly, he could tell the prince was in love when they spent time together last summer in Sicily.

“He didn’t discuss it much, but he said ‘I’m in love,'” John said. “Both those boys seem to be ecstatically happy and that’s great. I’m happy for him and I hope he has a wonderful day.”

However, John was mum on if he’d be performing on the pair’s big day, as he said nothing had been decided yet.

“I’m playing in Vegas so I have no idea what’s going to happen,” John added.

The “Rocket Man” singer also said he thinks Harry’s mother would be incredibly proud of both of her sons.

Ahead of the big day, suspicions about what type of bachlorette party Meghan Markle will be having have surfaced.

It’s no secret that Meghan and Harry have been calling the shots when it comes to planning their royal wedding.

“With the wedding, they both want to do things their way,” the source adds. “While they will always be mindful of traditions, the day is ultimately about them and what they want to do.”

Princess Eugenie Forced To Delay Wedding Because Of Prince Harry & Meghan

Your wedding day is the most important 24 hours of your life, where you and your soul mate join together for the rest of your lives. It takes a lot of careful planning, but with enough time, there’s no reason why you can’t get almost everything you want!

Unfortunately, even members of the royal family have to put up with relatives interfering with their carefully laid plans.

When we heard about the latest royal engagement between Princess Eugenie and her beau, Jack Brooksbank, we were thrilled to have another darling couple to fawn over throughout 2018!

The pair have been dating for over seven years, and couldn’t have looked happier in their official engagement photos together.

But while the world was excited for their relationship, it seems that their wedding plans have been shuffled to accommodate the other royal couple in the headlines.

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle’s Secret Matchmaker Has Finally Been Revealed

We all hoped that one day we would have a friend that would set us up with a prince. In Meghan Markle’s case, that hope actually came true.

Harry and Meghan admitted that meeting in 2016 was not by chance, but that they were introduced by a mutual friend. They kept this friend’s name anonymous to protect her privacy, until now.

Many people have speculated who this “secret friend” is. Some have presumed it was Meghan’s best friend, Jessica Mulroney, who is a stylist for many high-up clients. Others have suspected that it was fashion designer Misha Nonoo, who used to be married to one of Harry’s best friends. Another speculation was Markus Anderson, who accompanied Meghan and Harry during one of their first official outings together at the Invictus Games last September.

It is now confirmed that the not-so-secret matchmaker is Violet von Westenholz. Violet was one of Harry’s childhood best friends and their fathers were very close friends as well.

Violet knew that Harry was looking to find the right person, but was having trouble. That’s when she met Meghan. The two became friends through Violet’s PR work with the fashion house Ralph Lauren. Violet soon told Harry that she had the perfect girl for him.

How Will Meghan Markle React To Seeing Harry’s Ex At In-Laws Royal Wedding?

Every woman wants their wedding day to be just perfect. Surrounded by family and friends, it should be the happiest day of their life because they get to share it with the ones that they love.

This is probably why there has been so much talk about who gets to appear on the upcoming guest list for Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

Now, we have another wedding to look forward to for 2018, and this one is also going to be turning heads, if only for the drama that may occur.

Princess Eugenie announced her engagement to Jack Brooksbank recently, and while they haven’t set a date, we already know there will be some interesting table talk when the future Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive to take part in the ceremony.

This is thanks to one name in particular on the guest list, Cressida Bonas, a.k.a. Prince Harry’s former lover.

Meghan Markle Breaks Another Royal Rule, But She Did It For A 10-Year-Old Girl

The engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seems to be all the world can talk about right now, and for good reason! It’s so exciting that an American woman will be marrying into the royal family, and the fact that she’s an actress we have all been watching for years is just the cherry on top!

We’ve all been keeping up with the engagement, and trying to see how Markle will adapt to the royal rules. So far, she’s already come under fire for breaking rules about her hairstyles, but apparently that hasn’t deterred her from continuing to be her own person.

The royal-to-be broke protocols that have been in place for decades, but it was all for a 10-year-old girl. Caitlin Clark was lucky enough to meet the engaged couple on January 18th, outside of the Cardiff Castle in Wales. Excited to meet Markle, she quickly asked for an autograph. While it may seem like a simple request, it is a strictly forbidden practice in the royal family.

The reason they don’t give autographs isn’t because they don’t want to appreciate their fans, but because of something a lot more serious.

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Have Already Tasted An Unconventional Wedding Cake

Every wedding needs a wedding cake, even the royals. Of course, each couple has a different taste and vision of what they think the cake should look like. It could be as simple as a a three-tiered white cake, or as extravagant as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s cake, which was monstrous.

Hello Magazine

For royal wedding lovers, they remember there were actually two cakes. The traditional wedding cake was fruitcake, as is customary in the United Kingdom. The logic is that fruitcake lasts a long time while frozen, which means the top layer of the cake can be served at the christening of their first child.

“It’s a traditional cake but also quite delicate and modern,” cake maker Fiona Cairns said at the time. “All the tiers will have a different theme.”

But Prince William’s groom’s cake was a little different. His Royal Highness requested his favorite chocolate biscuit cake, with tea cookies, chocolate, and nuts.

PA/Daily Mail

Now, with another royal wedding quickly approaching, people are starting to wonder if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going to stick with tradition or if they’re going to break royal protocol, as they’ve already done many times before.

It was widely reported that the couple wanted a banana cake, as they both love “anything with banana,” and also because it was the first image Markle posted after her relationship with the prince was confirmed.

The wedding isn’t until May, so they have some time to decide. But as the new couple begins their duties together as soon-to-be-newlyweds, they’re already sneaking in some cake tastings. It’s probably safe to say, though, that the one they tasted on Thursday won’t be making the cut.

Can You Figure Out Who Is Going To Make Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress?

We are officially only four months away from the next royal wedding, and there is so much to prepare for the big day! We can only imagine that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be busy enough picking and choosing what they want included when they finally walk down the aisle together.

While we know that Meghan plans on having her mother walk her to the altar (as opposed to her estranged father) one secret that is being kept well under wraps is what she plans to wear on the walk towards her future-husband.

It has been suggested that this may be one of the hardest decisions that Meghan will have to make, and may take the longest to assemble.

Christine Ross, a blogger who dedicates her time to analyzing the bride-to-be’s fashion choices, says there is likely a lengthy interview process.

“I imagine Meghan has reached out to designers she loves and admires and has spoken with them about design options and their design process,” she says. “From there, she would choose a designer who she clicks with to create the perfect bespoke gown.”

But who is on the list of potential candidates?

Meghan Markle’s First Royal Gift Has Been Revealed

Everyone loves presents, and the royal family is no exception.

Every January, the royal family releases an extensive list of all the gifts they receive throughout the past year, and no present is spared.

In 2017, Prince George and Princess Charlotte received several gifts, including books, toy trains and planes, coloring books, toys, and lollipops, PEOPLE reported.

Kate Middleton was given several new dresses, earrings, and handbags during her July trip to Poland and Germany, and Prince William picked up plenty of books, a vase and, and a pair of knitted booties.

But the question every is asking is what did Meghan Markle, the soon-to-be member of the royal family, receive this year?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Prove That They’re Just Like The Rest Of Us

With the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just four months away, we wonder how they are spending the free time they have before the entire world is watching their married lives together.

The 33-year-old Prince and 36-year-old American actress have now been spotted together in a few official public appearances, and if there is any take-away, it’s that this couple is pretty down to earth.

While the couple does enjoy dining out in London’s Soho neighborhood, many nights Harry and Meghan can be found in their Kensington home.

Their two bedroom home has been transformed since Meghan moved in. With lots of flowers, candles and cashmere throws, their home life is definitely a relaxing experience.

Mirror

The couple is said to enjoy cooking together, with Harry being partial to fish pie and Meghan cooking up jerk chicken and spicy fish.

“They’re spending as much time as they can on their own together, with lots of casual suppers and TV,” a palace insider told the MailOnline.

While cooking and eating together is common for this couple, there is also one other past-time they enjoy that we can all relate to.

Meghan Markle Can’t Wear A Tiara, But Kate Middleton Can, Here’s Why

The royal wedding between newly engaged couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is only months away, but we won’t be seeing this soon-to-be bride flashing anything that hints at her becoming royalty.

On the other hand, Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton, has stepped out wearing royal jewelry on several occasions, including the time she wore Princess Diana’s favorite tiara as a touching tribute.

There are many differences between Meghan and the Duchess of Cambridge.

It was only last week that Meghan made headlines for appearing in public with a “messy” hairstyle. She was walking in the streets of London with her fiance in a messy-style bun.

That’s something you’ll never see Kate do. Meghan’s soon-to-be sister-in-law usually wears her hair in a classic chignon when she puts it up.

Whether she’ll break royal tradition once again is up for debate, but it’s unlikely that she’ll get past this one.

Here’s why you won’t be seeing Meghan posing for photos with a tiara on anytime soon.

Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s Romance To Become LifeTime Movie

It’s been a whirlwind romance for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle since they became a couple in the summer of 2016.

Months after becoming engulfed in never-ending media attention, the couple announced their plans to wed, to the excitement of royal watchers from across the globe.

Since the news of their upcoming nuptials was released, Meghan has been spotted spending plenty of time with her soon-to-be family, and it appears she’s fitting right in.

“It was fantastic. She really enjoyed it,” Harry said of their first Christmas together. “The family loved having her there.”

“I think we’ve got one the biggest families I know and every family is complex,” he added. “She has done an absolutely amazing job, just getting in there and it’s the family, I suppose, that she’s never had.”

While the public hasn’t been privy to all of the intimate details of the pair’s loved-up relationship, that’s soon about to change.

Meghan Markle Shows Up With A New Hairstyle That Breaks Royal Protocol

When you’re a member of the royal family, there’s a strict guideline on how you’re supposed to present yourself.

From how you accessorize your outfit to which brand names you wear, everyone has all eyes on the royals when it comes to their fashion choices.

The royals have many fashion protocols to follow, including not wearing colorful nail polish, showing cleavage and wearing wedge shoes in front of the Queen.

But occasionally they make slip ups.

Not even the the Queen herself is flawless when it comes to attire. In December, she accidentally matched her guests, Nigerian High Commissioner George Oguntade and his wife Modupe Adewemimo, when they arrived for a meeting at Buckingham Palace.

The trio all wore a similar vibrant purple attire, which is a color that has been long associated with royalty.

And the color coordination didn’t go unnoticed.

“Same colours… is that an Oooops?” one person comment on Instagram.

“I love the color coordination. Beautiful,” another commented.

Princess Diana, Harry’s late mother, was known for breaking royal protocol and disregarding the rule to wear gloves in public. She felt like the accessory made interactions less personal and opted not to wear the garment.

“She liked to hold hands when visiting people or shake hands and have direct contact,” Eleri Lynn, the curator of a fashion exhibition on Princess Diana, told Hello magazine. “She also stopped wearing hats because she said, ‘You can’t cuddle a child in a hat.'”

The newest addition from the royal family could be taking queues from Diana.

While she isn’t becoming a part of the royal family until later this year, Meghan Markle isn’t letting the rules slow down her style.

Prince Harry Might Not Choose Brother Prince William To Be His Best Man

As the world patiently awaits the wedding between Prince Harry and his gorgeous bride-to-be Meghan Markle this upcoming May, more details are reaching us about the unorthodox ceremony the two of them have planned.

The young couple are truly a “modern romance” and it seems they have no qualms about breaking traditions to make the special day their own. Markle has already expressed her desire to have her mother walk her down the aisle instead of her estranged father.

“The day of the wedding itself will certainly hold a few unconventional surprises. Don’t expect a royal wedding by numbers,” a source close to the royal family has said. “They want to involve their friends and family as much in as much as possible throughout the day.”

Despite this, Prince William recently revealed in an interview that his younger brother has yet to offer him the role of best man in his wedding, even though William did the same at his wedding in 2011.

There’s one reason that Prince Harry might be holding out…

10 Things We Learned About Meghan Markle Before She Deleted All Her Social Media Profiles

A little over a month after announcing their engagement, Prince Harry’s 36-year-old fiancee, Meghan Markle, deleted all of her social media accounts.

We didn’t have much time to learn about the soon-to-princess, and we were also secretly hoping to gain exclusive access into the lives of the royals if she kept her social media running.

Although she left all her new fans confused by going off the social media grid, there’s still a lot of information circulating on the internet about how she portrayed herself on social media.

Here are 10 things we learned about Meghan before she deleted all her social media profiles.

We’re seriously going to miss these candid photos!

1. She participates in a lot of humanitarian work.

While she spent a lot of time preparing and filming for the role of Rachel Zane on Suits, Meghan also allocated time for doing a good deed. She was a global ambassador for World Vision Canada and an advocate for the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. I’m sure she’ll be doing a lot more humanitarian work now that she’s going to be a full-time royal.

2. She’s into calligraphy.

While she tried to start a successful career in acting, Meghan worked as a freelance calligrapher, writing wedding invitations for celebrities like Robin Thicke and Paula Patton.

“I think handwritten notes are a lost art form. When I booked my first [TV] pilot, my dad wrote me a letter that I still have. The idea of someone taking the time to put pen to paper is really special,” she told Esquire.

3. She was married once before.

Meghan dated producer Trevor Engleson in 2004, and they tied the knot in 2011. The pair got divorced two years later.

4. She loves inspirational quotes.

She knew that words can change the world, and she always made sure to post something inspirational that would not only uplift readers, but also herself.

5. She’s doesn’t like being photoshopped.

We all know by know that Meghan is biracial. Her mother is African American and her father is white. She’s previously spoken about the challenges of growing up mixed-race and being seen as “ethnically ambiguous,” but that doesn’t mean she wants to look any different.

“To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot,” she said.

You probably didn’t know these next things about the soon-to-be royal!

Palmistry Experts Weigh In On The 3 Rings That Meghan Markle Was Spotted Wearing

There has been a lot of attention paid to soon-to-be-royalty Meghan Markle’s ring lately, as her and Prince Harry prepare for their wedding next year.

However, in their first public outing together, people began to notice that Meghan was sporting a new collection of jewelry that could explain how she feels about her new role in the royal family.

When Prince Harry and her stopped by a radio station in Brixton, photographers focused in on three gold bands that she had on certain fingers of her right hand.

While many overlooked this detail, those practiced in the art of palmistry spoke up to explain why she may have chosen to wear these particular symbols.

They note that the thumb, index finger, and right ring finger all play a special role in fortune telling, and personal development.
